Speaker Dialogue
The episode begins with Rose Quartz talking to the camera.
Rose Steven, we can't both exist. I'm going to become half of you. And I need you to know that every moment you love being yourself, that's me, loving you and loving being you... because you're going to be something extraordinary. You're going to be --
What turns out to be a video is rewinded to "you're going to be something extraordinary" two times before Steven writes down on his notepad.
Steven Extraordinary... experience.
Lion gets comfortable on Steven's bed as he grooms himself.
Steven Okay, I think I've got something. [Clears throat to get Lion's attention] So, this time, I put together the first letter of the first word of every sentence. It spells "ittaisiaby."
Lion continues to groom himself and remain inattentive.
Steven It might not sound like much, but if you rearrange those letters, it says "Bait it I say," or "I stay a bit," or "I bitty Asia."
Lion overhears Steven's hypothesis, but disregards it quickly.
Steven Well [Sighs] "I bitty Asia" could mean something. Maybe I'm supposed to go back to Asia? And... bite something?
Lion [Yawns]
Steven puts his notepad down and ejects the VHS tape.
Steven [sighs] There has to be a clue somewhere. Mom says she wanted to have me. But that must mean there's a reason. There has to be something I was meant to do. My magical Gem destiny.
Lion starts to gag.
Steven Come on, Lion. I need you to focus here.
Lion starts to retch.
Steven No, no, no! Lion, at least do it on the floor!
Lion finishes coughing up, liquid splattering.
Steven Why is it always on the bed? [Gasps]
Steven notices Lion coughing up a Pink Key.
Steven Magical hair-ball destiny.
Lion retches one more time, letting out a devoured blue iguana-like creature.
Steven Okay. That's gross.
Steven cleans up the mess and focuses on the key.
Steven Right. Anyway. This key. Mom must have wanted you to give this to me now. What does it open? [Places hand on the bow] Hm... Oh! Hey, Lion.
Steven enters Lion's Dimension to unlock the chest. The key does not fit, so he heads back out.
Steven [Exhales deeply and pants] Maybe if I...
Steven heads back in to try again only to fail again.
Steven [Exhales deeply and pants] If this key isn't for that chest, then what is it for?
Steven enters Rose's Secret Armory.
Steven Nothing to unlock here.
Steven enters Rose's Fountain and tosses the key into the water, to no effect.
Steven So, not here, either?
Steven enters Rose's Room.
Steven Give me something this key unlocks.
A padlock appears.
Steven [Gasps]
Steven puts the key into the padlock and twists, making the padlock disappear and cause nothing to happen.
Steven [Groans]
Back inside the beach house
Steven [Scratches head with key] Hmm... [Gasps] Of course! The answers were inside me the whole time!
Steven jabs himself in the head with the key and falls back-first.
Steven [Sighs] Where am I supposed to go? This has to unlock something. There must be someplace I haven't been. [Crawls to Lion] Lion. Take me somewhere new.
Lion [Yawns]
Steven Hey, come on. Where did you get this? Can you please take me there? Pleeeeease? [Gets knocked down by Lion] [Muffled] Pleeeee... [Normal voice] ...eeeease?
Lion and Steven warp to the desert.
Steven Hey. This is where we found you. Something of Mom's is hidden here, right? Take me there.
Lion begins to run toward the destination. Steven is uncomfortable basking in the heat.
Steven [Weakly] Where are we going? It's been hours. [Sighs] Mom... who were you? Who am I? Garnet... Amethyst... Pearl... They won't say it, but... I know they expect something big from me. But how can I fulfill my destiny if I don't even know what it is? Who am I supposed to be?
Steven checks where he is, seeing Lion as arrived at the destination.
Steven Mom?
Lion stops, and Steven falls to the ground dehydrated.
Steven [Gasps] So this is it. Couldn't we had just warped here?
Steven reaches into Lion's mane to refresh himself with a bottle of water. Steven approaches the structure's while observing its outer design.
Steven Whatever's behind this door, I know it's something important.
Steven jams the key into the lock.
Steven Please tell me my destiny.
Steven opens the door.
Steven Wha...?
The destination's interior is revealed to be Rose's Landfill. Steven is dazed; he picks up a sword that turns out to be broken from the sheath.
Steven What? Is this... just Rose's trash dump?
Lion appears to chase a blue iguana-like creature.
Steven No. Please! There was supposed to be something here to tell me my purpose! This is just a bunch of garbage Mom left behind! [Growls]
Steven kicks a hardhat far away. He wipes his face of his sweat. He notices a VHS tape.
Steven Huh? It's... another tape from Mom? But... wh-who's Nora? A-Am I not the only one? Do I have a sister? Lion! what is this? W-Who's Nora?
Lion disregards Steven.
Steven I know I've asked a lot from you today, but please, just one more time. I need your help. I need to know what this tape means. I won't get mad the next time you throw up on my bed.
Lion widens his eyes and warps once more, this time, close to Beach City.
Steven This is near Beach City. Lion, are you sure this is the right --
Steven notices guitar music playing.
Steven Nora.
Steven runs toward the source, only to be encountered by Greg playing a tune on his guitar.
Greg Oh, hey, shtu-ball.
Steven Dad?! You're Nora?
Greg Who?
Steven What are you doing here?
Greg Getting some songs figured out. Ah, this is sort of my jamming hill. Used to be a tree by the warehouse, but a 7th-grader with a flute muscled me out.
Steven Uh... yeah. [Sighs]
Greg Are you okay?
Steven [Presents found tape] I found this.
Greg Oh, my gosh. [Grabs tape] I never thought I'd see this again.
Steven You've seen this tape before?
Greg Of course. Come here. You should, too.
Greg puts the VHS into his TV and presses play. Greg and Rose appear to be at the beach, with Greg being followed by a seagull.
Greg (TV) He's following me now.
Rose [Laughing] Maybe he'll help you with your intro this time.
Steven Dad?
Greg Shh! Keep watching.
Greg (TV) Okay... now!
The camera pans to Greg in his Mr. Universe pose with guitar in hand.
Greg (TV) They call me... [Strums his guitar three times] ...Mr. Universe! Get ready, baby, 'cause you're gonna have the coolest dad this side of the cosmos. [Continues to strum guitar while orally imitating such strums]
Steven This is...
Rose I press it now, right?
Greg (TV) Do it. Woah! [Falls over]
Rose Greg? [Laughs at the seagull landing on the headstock]
Greg (TV) Can we edit this part?
Rose [Laughing] No, no. It's perfect.
The video cuts to Rose's message.
Rose Isn't it wonderful, Nora? This world is full of so many possibilities.
Steven ... My video.
Rose Each living thing has an entirely unique experience. The sights they see, the lives they live are so complicated simple.
Steven This is just like the video Mom made me.
Rose Nora, we can't both exist. But I won't be gone. I'm going to become half of you. And every moment you enjoy being yourself, that will be me, loving being you.
Steven No! [Turns off TV] I don't understand. Why is this the same as the video you guys made me? Who's Nora?
Greg [Chuckles and wipes tears] N-Nora is you.
Steven I'm my mom and my sister?! What kind of destiny is this?!
Greg [Laughs] No, no. We just had it down to two names -- Steven if you were a boy, and Nora if you were a girl.
Steven So, then, would Nora have the magical destiny if I wasn't here?
Greg Magical destiny? I don't know about that.
Steven But Mom did. She was trying to tell me something with my tape. She keeps leaving me... puzzle pieces. Sooner or later, I'm going to understand what I'm for!
Greg Woah! Steven, it's okay. [Pats the edge of the van] Come here. Come here.
Steven Am I supposed to be -- D-did she want me to be Nora?
Greg Steven, she just wanted you to be you. When you have a kid, you have no idea who they're gonna be. Even Garnet couldn't predict it. That's what was so exciting to your mom, that life is full of so many possibilities, and you would get to explore them for yourself. I mean, you could be Steven or Nora or anyone else. And you can always change your name. Hey, I did.
Steven, after a little pause, resumes the tape.
Rose Because you're going to become something extraordinary. You're going to be a human being. [Giggles] That's my favorite part. A human being. A human is an action. I wonder who, how you'll be, what you'll think, what you'll want. Oh, I'm so happy for everyone who's going to know you. [Chuckles] I'm rambling. If they look to you, trust yourself. Take care of them, Nora.
The video ends.
Steven So that's it. I'm just... supposed to be her kid.
Greg Well... yeah. Is that okay?
Steven Yeah. [Wipes face] I think I can handle that.
Steven and Greg embrace as the camera pans to Beach City.
